Drunk Or Dreaming Tour Underway
Kane Brown is in the midst of his Drunk or Dreaming Tour, where he showcases performances of his biggest hits such as “Like I Love Country Music,” “Homesick,” “Heaven,” and more.
During each show, he pauses to take moment to remember where he came from and often covers a variety of songs each night, including “Friends In Low Places.”
“How many people know how I got started doing music? If you don’t know, I was doing covers on Facebook. I eventually went and bought a guitar and moved in with my nana when I was like 19 or 20. I learned guitar, as much as I could on YouTube,” he shared from the stage during his recent concert at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. “George Strait was the one that made me go viral. I did everybody, Justin Moore, I did Sam Hunt, I did Garth Brooks…Every country artist you could name I was doing their songs on Facebook. I probably had like 500 covers, and then I got my record deal here in Nashville, thank you guys so much.”
Additionally, Brown recently shared a cover of “Stand By Me” and has also performed Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Simple Man” and Shania Twain’s “Man! I Feel Like A Woman.”
New Single At Country Radio
Kane Brown recently returned to country radio with his brand new single, “Bury Me In Georgia.” The song was co-written by Brown alongside Josh Hoge, Matt McGinn, and Jordan Schmidt.
“Bury Me In Georgia” appears on his latest album, Different Man, and serves as a musical tribute to his home state.
“‘Bury Me In Georgia’ just a song, you know, about the home state that I grew up in,” Brown says. “That’s where I want to go whenever it’s my time. Especially the Georgia Bulldogs, they on top of it right now about three-peat so anyway, no, Georgia is just, you know, it’s always gonna place in my heart.”
The song is the follow-up to Brown’s latest No.1 hit, “Thank God,” which features his wife, Katelyn Brown. It’s quite the juxtaposition from the romantic duet and showcases a different side of Brown’s artistry.
“Bury me in Georgia/ Lemme rest in peace/ Underneath the pines/ Yeah, yeah, yeah/ Where my roots run deep/ When it’s my day/ Put me in that clay/ And remember what I told ya/ When I die/ Bury me in Georgia,” he sings alongside a boot-stomping, rock-heavy beat.
Arriving just in time for Spring and Summer, this track is destined to be another radio hit for the genre-bending star.
Fans can catch Brown’s Drunk Or Dreaming Tour now throughout the summer as he has several dates scheduled around the country.
He’s also slated to appear at several festivals, including Stagecoach, iHeart Country Music Festival, and Gulf Coast Jam.
